lol actually it was a 3 move x-cross. i do the 3 moves as i pick up the cube, so my cheap webcam doesn't pick them up.
i actually went back and figured out the solution i used:
scramble:R' U' R2 F2 R L2 D2 R U' L' F2 L' R2 B' R' F B' R' D2 F' B2 R' L D' B
x-cross:x2 y' U R' U' (3)
F2L 2:z' x2 R U' R U (4)
F2L 3:x' R2 U' R2 U R U' R' U (8)
F2L 4:R' x' U' R U R' U' R' U (7)
OLL: z y R U2 R' U' R U R' U' R U' R' (11)
PLL: y R2 U R U R' U' R' U' R' U R' (11)
total moves: 44 44/9.63=4.57 tps

I'm pretty sure a one-move cross or a 3-move x-cross is lucky

A 3-move cross is already lucky...

7.96 this is stupid.

okay, i wasn't sure. if i could change the title of the thread i would do so.
As far as I know, easy steps aren't usually considered lucky, only skipping steps is.

Exactly, is F R U R' U' F' and an edge three cycle no AUF at all a lucky LL?

Wow - my first ever sub-20, lucky or non-lucky: 19.42. And I did it without warming up! So that's what sub-20 feels like!

I hadn't read any of the comments in the thread when I tried it, so I actually didn't realize that the cross was an X-cross; I inserted the third pair and realized I was done, so I saw it as a skip of a CE pair (actually I had done the X-cross without realizing it). So it was technically lucky for me.

Seriously, no matter how lucky the scramble was, that's just amazing for me! Thanks for this scramble!

Where'd you get a black stackmat timer? Plus it's got cool lights under the buttons.

i got it at on clearance at Target. it was USD$10, originally$20. its part of the "glow-in-the-dark stackpack," so it came with cups and a mat. however it does not have a competition port so i can't plug it in to my computer. i would still recommend one if you can find one for \$10-20 like i did.

I guess I'll try this later. Knowing if the scramble is easy usually screw up my times. If I hadn't know this is lucky, I'll probably get sub-15, but knowing it is, I'll probably pop and get 30+ seconds.

I don't understand how an easy scramble can be not lucky...

by non-lucky i meant that there were no OLL/PLL skips. of course it was lucky in that it was waaaayyyy faster than my average, and by no means am i going to count it as a PB

I disagree, I get 3-move crosses more often than you would think.

Dene, are you color neutral? I am, and I get a fair share of easy crosses, too.
